Convert Raw Scores to Cumulative Percentages
Step 4: Compute the Cumulative Percentage.
Now it is time to compute the cumulative percentage for each raw score (i.e., each X value). Each cumulative percentage gives the percent of individuals at or below its corresponding X value. First, find the sum of f, which is the total number of scores in the population (N). Then find the cumulative percentage by dividing the cumulative frequency (cf) by N. Finally, multiply by 1, or 100%. Here are the formulas.
- C% = cf/N (100%)
- C% = cumulative percentage
- cf = cumulative frequency
- N = total number of scores in the population; N=∑f
